Hi there

Can anyone tell me how to create a video from fluent. I am running on 2ddp Unsteady State.

I read the documentation from Fluent website on how to create a animation sequence and followed that. It created a .cxa file and numerous HMF files. Then I write a MPEG video from those files as told by Fluent Documentation. But all I get is a blank video. A video that plays for 2 mins but displays nothing.

When I opened .cxa file in notepad and checked for any errors with HMF files but everything was perfect with those files.

I asked fluent to write PPM files as well as METAFILE for Contours and saved them in 2 different folders. Both the files(PPM and METAFILE) gives a blank video.

Can someone help me with this case.

Thanks
Krishna

Video from Fluent isn't very friendly
What I always did is to generate picture each time step, and then generate video from all the pictures.
you can use solve/execute... and then TUI commands for setting and exporting pictures.

Before running the unsteady simulations, go to Calculation Activities > Solution Animations > give required info and set the window > calculate > graphics animation > solution animation playback > write
